It’s time for the final round of the tournament. Who can possibly claim victory! Leader and Beast both have super strength that they have attained over the years, but the Leader is superior. He got the Hulk’s power and throughout all of his mutations, the Beast has never grown quite that strong. He is simply outmatched. Leader also has a lot of good inventions to back him up as well. There you have it, the first blog tournament is now over. The Leader has claimed victory and has risen up quite a few ranks on the blog. It is certainly a pretty historic moment for him. Stay tuned for an announcement of the next tournament at some point! Leader wins.
Here’s a link to the first ever tournament bracket.
It’s time for the second round of the semi finals. Beast Boy is a pretty versatile fighter who can turn into any animal that he can think. This means that he can fight in many different ways, but none of his forms are as strong as the Hulk. Leader figured out how to give himself the Hulk’s strength at one point and coupled with his great intellect and many armors…it will be enough to win the fight. Beast Boy just can’t deal with that level of strength. Leader wins.
Tuxedo Mask is pretty strong for a human. His rose can cut through energy blasts and he has been shown to move at high speeds on occasion. It’s not all that consistent though and typically he does not look impressive by any stretch of the imagination. On the other hand, Beast has a decent amount of super strength and speed on his side as well. This round could really go either way which is fitting since a match this far into the blog tournament should be a close one. At the moment, I’d lean towards Beast here, but a re watch of the TV show could change that someday. Beast wins.
It’s time for the last round of the quarter finals. Grasshoppers may be stronger than we gave them credit for and the single win that it got in the previous round will help it jump over at least 1000 fighters. Still, it won’t be enough to stop Beast Boy. He’s completely in his element against any animal since he can turn into the perfect counter. He also has some alien creatures at his disposal as well which will make for an easy victory. Beast Boy wins.
Brontosaurus may have won his first round, but he won’t be able to deal with the Leader’s gamma power. Leader is extremely intelligent after having been exposed to radiation. He also obtained the Hulk’s physical power for a while. While the Brontosaurus may be bullet proof for the most part, he’s not Hulk proof. The Leader wins this round soundly and is looking like a favorite to take the whole tournament. Can he do it!? Leader wins.
Riddler has made it pretty far considering this is his first tournament. Still, it all ends here. The Beast is far too quick for the Riddler and he is also a lot stronger. The Riddler will be completely helpless against him and it’s not as if the guy was a great fighter in the first place. He simply isn’t in the same league as the Beast and I never thought I’d be saying that for any opponent against Beast. I’m not exactly a big fan, but the guy has proven himself. Beast wins.
The tourney continues with a big match between a crime fighting vigilante and the leader of the mob. Kingpin is a pretty tough boss and he never lost his brutal strength. He evidently never stopped training, but he still doesn’t have the speed needed to deal with Tuxedo Mask. Mask was able to take on alien warriors and his rose even cut through an energy blast. A single hit could potentially be lethal to Kingpin and you can be sure that the rose will find its mark. It always does! Tuxedo Mask wins.
It’s time for the real final match of round 1. The Penguin is a very smart villain although not as smart as some comics give him credit for. One issue actually had Batman admit that the Penguin was smarter than him and we all know that this isn’t true. Regardless, as a result, the Penguin has never achieved a real power up during the comics. There’s a chance that one exists and simply isn’t listed so feel free to let me know if you find something. Meanwhile, Beast Boy definitely takes this round for now as he can transform into some real dangerous animals and is simply a much better fighter. Beast Boy wins.
The tourney’s first round ends with this round….or it should have. Beast Boy got sick watching too many Teen Titans Go reruns so his round with Penguin has been very temporarily postponed. Here, it looked like Nemo could have had a shot at his first victory, but it wasn’t to be. In the film Beginning of The End, Giant Grasshoppers stormed the capital and dealt major damage. That means that via composite rules, Nemo is fighting a kaiju and he wasn’t prepared for that. I certainly wasn’t either, but the film definitely sounds very intense. Grasshopper will be moving on and maybe he’ll be able to win it all! Grasshopper wins.
This was an interesting round. According to some articles I was reading, Dinosaurs are effectively bullet proof. Not all of them, but the larger ones would be because of how thick their skin is and how little blood they would lose from getting shot. After that the question is…can Alex last long enough to do any real damage? It’s also been a while since I saw the film so I can’t remember if he got anything stronger than his sniper rifle towards the middle of the film. I can’t think of anything and the boats wouldn’t be handy here without any other crew. As of now, Brontosaurus takes the win and moves up, but this is definitely one that could change rather easily. Brontosaurus wins.
